The Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has felicitated with Muslim faithful in the country and all over the world on the celebration of the Eid-el-Fitri, which marks the end of the Ramadan period.
The Minister in his Eid-el-Fitri message by his Special Assistant on Media, Olayinka Oyebode, congratulated Muslims on the successful completion of the Ramadan fast, stressing that witnessing another Eid-el-Fitri is a special privilege from the Almighty Allah who has control over the destiny of man.
Fayemi said the 30-day spiritual exercise, no doubt, has drawn the faithful closer to Allah and urged them to keep on practicing the lessons learnt from the holy month in their relationship with their Maker and fellow human beings.
He also urged the citizens to be vigilant and celebrate in moderation, noting that the current situation in the country and globally has made it imperative for Muslims and adherents of other religions to live in love, peace and harmony with one another, and seek the face of God in prayer for divine intervention.
The Minister said prayers by the faithful are needed more than ever for God’s intervention in the affairs of the country, even as he expressed confidence in the ability of God to bless and keep the country in answer to the prayers of his people.
